Praise

“One of the most impressive comic-strip collections ever produced.” — The Washington Times

“Check out The Complete Little Orphan Annie by Harold Gray. The blank-eyed orphan was far grittier and moving than the saccharine Annie you know from the damn musical. [It] started in 1924 in a world chillingly like ours: crawling with cake-eaters, greedy bankers and international con men who exploit the hardscrabble working stiffs Annie hangs with when her “Daddy” isn’t around to protect her. The cartoonist, a tightlipped Midwestern Dickens, pushes the virtues of honesty, pluck, and hard work in adventures that can melt the heart of even hard-boiled cynics like I pretend to be.” — Art Spiegelman

“In 1924, Gray offered Little Orphan Annie as a radical departure—a serious, often bleak drama…. This gives us a chance to reappraise Gray, one of the most controversial cartoonists of his generation.”Ben Schwartz, Book Forum

“The Sunday pages are perhaps the truest color reproductions of this sort of early work…. Reading this book is like diving into history, without the musty smell. —Scoop
